            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 242 Mott Street, N.Y.C. 10012.

               The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record 
          and has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to 
          the issues raised by the petition.

               The issue before the Commissioner is whether the 
          Administrator's order was correct.

               The Administrator's order being appealed, EA420007BO was 
          issued on February 23, 1990.  In the order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of 7MD05534M issued November 15, 1989, that 
          the owner be denied eligibility for a 1986/87 Maximum Base Rent 
          (MBR) increase, due to the owner's "failure to send Copy of Payment 
          check, front and rear, with dates clearly indicated."

               On appeal, the owner states that the fee payment represented 
          by the check was submitted on a timely basis, and submits alleged 
          proof thereof.

               The owner submits a front and back Copy of its Check # 160, 
          drawn on Chemical Bank, dated October 10, 1989, payable to NYS-in 
          the amount of $180.00.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should 
          be granted.

















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EC430172RO

               An examination of the record reveals that the owner submitted 
          the fee payment and was placed in this file and was logged in by a 
          DHCR employee.

               The Commissioner is thus of the opinion that,as there was 
          evidence that the fee Payment was filed by the owner on a timely 
          basis and inasmuch as this evidence was available to the 
          Administrator, the Administrator was therefore in error in finding 
          that the owner had failed to pay its MBR fee on a timely basis and 
          thus postponing the owner eligibility.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations, it is

               ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and 
          the same hereby is granted, and that the order of the Rent 
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, revoked.  The owner is 
          hereby granted eligibility to raise MBRs at the subject premises 
          for 1986/87, effective January 1, 1986, subject to the terms and 
          conditions on the attached sheet.

          ISSUED:








                                                                          
                                             LULA M. ANDERSON
                                             Deputy Commissioner
